California Deserts Visitor Information

Enjoy a Sunset at Fonts Point

If you don’t mind a bit of sand and driving over 3 miles of wash (it’s not that bad really) you will discover a vista that will stay with you for a lifetime!

I was there in winter and it was cold.  Check the weather before you go.  Make sure to bring a couple of chairs and a bottle of wine.  Watch the colors change on the carved canyons and walls as the sun dives into the sand.

The trailhead can be reached via County Highway S-22 (Borrego-Salton Seaway). East of milepost marker #29 is the signed entrance to Font’s Wash. Make a right turn and follow the wash approximately 3.0 miles. Soon, the road narrows into several hairpin turns, then widens again. Look for a large Indigo Bush growing in the middle of the wash. This marks the informal trailhead.

Park on the right or left shoulder of the wash.  From this small parking area, hike west about 10 – 15 minutes across a gentle sloping featureless incline.
